Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Traffic Safety Advisory Commission approved the final version of the 2023-2026 Michigan Strategic Highway Safety Plan, or SHSP, Tuesday.
The data-driven, four-year plan aims to improve safety for all Michiganders, regardless of their mode of transportation, according to the governor’s office.
A new change to the SHSP is the Safe System Approach, or SSA, officials said.
The approach identifies key safety needs, guides investment decisions to eradicate death and serious injuries on state roads, allows statewide highway safety programs to work together to place and support resources, and addresses the state’s safety challenges, according to the governor’s office.
